The ALSIM AL172, certified as an FNPT II (EASA), replicates the Cessna 172SP Skyhawk with a Garmin G1000 NXI and GFC700 autopilot.

“Turkish Airlines Flight Academy accelerated its quality and superior training with the aircraft, simulators and other requirements it acquired, aiming to train professional pilots in order to meet Turkish Airlines’ increasing need for qualified pilots,” TAFA CEO İbrahim Zeki Akyurt explained. “The reason we chose the AL172 simulator is that its cockpit is an exact replica of the Cessna 172SP Skyhawk NAV III aircraft and ALSIM offers proven and reliable FSTD models.”

“Instructors sit on simulators for thousands of hours, so we know that providing them comfort and ease-of-use is key. That’s why we spent so many hours perfecting our Instructor Station,” Leonardo Rodrigues, ALSIM Sales Manager, added.

TAFA, founded to support Turkish Airlines’ pilot needs, operates with 40 training aircraft and multiple simulators, training around 300 graduates annually.
